January 6, 2012 - Bowl Players Visit Patients at USA Children's & Women's Hospital - Archived

Jamia Wright enjoyed her visit from this unidentified Arkansas State player.

College football players from Northern Illinois and Arkansas State set aside their gridiron differences and came together at USA Children’s & Women’s Hospital on Jan. 5 to visit young patients on the hospital’s pediatric floors. The players were participants in the annual Bowl held in Mobile on Jan. 8.

Handing out teddy bears and T-shirts to their newest fans, the players and patients alike thoroughly enjoyed the annual visit, which is part of the hospital’s ongoing “distraction therapy” for pediatric patients.

Gabriel Walker was the center of attention from this trio of Northern Illinois players.
